CRANIUM

 

My approach to this style is informed by my natural fascination with bone structure and anatomy, animals and old objects; "fossils" we leave behind that construct a universal identity of our common humanity. Rust, age, bones, bullets, scratches, corrosion, splashes, burns, engravings, stencils, graffitists, are all key elements in my paintings with ambiguous meanings that evoke the power of art as a tool to understand our complexities as human beings.One particularity of this body of work is the dimensionality I like to add to my elements. The idea came about early on in my artistic career experimenting with “Le Matiérisme” and influenced by Tapies's “Materica” period. At times I paint realistically or incorporate specific objects in the form of collage into my paintings for their symbolic value. I have worked with several media and techniques and I like to mix and incorporate them all to get the visual results I want; for instance the fusion of graffiti with engraving using digital media and airbrushing.
